      Sioux Falls Walk to End Epilepsy

      Join us for the FIRST EVER Walk to End Epilepsy in Sioux Falls, SD, at the Great Life Performance Center on June 22, 2019. Registration starts at 8 am, and the walk begins at 9 am. Register your teams and begin fundraising here:

      Epilepsy is a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed thereby causing seizures. It is the 4th-most common neurological disorder and affects people of all ages. More people live with epilepsy than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, MS, and cerebral palsy – combined. In the U.S., 1 in 26 people will develop epilepsy during their lifetime, and 1 in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime. In all, about 7,000+ adults in South Dakota and over 1,000 kids have epilepsy.

      Funds raised will go toward organizing a South Dakota chapter of the Foundation, and jump-starting programs right here in Sioux Falls such as the Kids Crew, Empowerment Groups, and Teens Speak Up.
